NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — On Monday, the Tennessee Department of Education released its annual state report card for the 2018-2019 school year.

The report aims to provide access to data and information on every school and district across Tennessee.

TDOE changed the look of this year's online dashboard for the report in an effort to make the information easier to access and more user friendly.

"Our goal is to provide Tennessee families, educators, community members, and public officials with information about the schools and districts they care about in a way that makes sense," Education Commissioner Penny Schwinn said. "The report card is another opportunity for the department to continue seeking input, listening to feedback, and continuously improving as a result."

The information is broken down into six main categories: Academic achievement, student academic growth, chronically out of school, progress on English language proficiency, ready graduate and graduation rate.

A rating system is given on a score of 0.0 to 4.0 for each category, similar to a GPA with 4.0 being the highest.
